I found this recipe on the Make Life Delicious blog. When I was going through my saved recipes I noticed that everything I saved was chocolate and peanut butter, which is one of my favorite combination but I decided to keep looking for something different. This sounded good, and I was able to adapt it so that it was better for my grandfather who has diabetes (after all this was for fathers day)
35 - 40 oreos
6 tbsp melted butter
8 oz cream cheese, softened ( I used reduced fat )
1/4 c. sugar
2 tbsp cold milk
12 oz cool whip. thawed ( I used sugar free)
3 1/4 c milk
2 small pkg Jello chocolate instant pudding ( I used sugar free)
process cookies in food processor until crumbs form. ( I don't have a food processor, so I used a nut chopper, it worked really well... the magic number is 6 cookies)
As Tim Gunn would say "make it work" so I did
Mix in melted butter and then press into the bottom of a 9 by 13 pan. Refrigerate
Whisk cream cheese, suagr and 2 tbsp milk until blended, fold in 1 1/4 c cool whip.
cream cheese mixture
Spread over crust
Beat pudding and 3 1/4 cup milk with whisk for 2 min. pour over cream cheese layer.
( I added some left over crushed oreos on top)
Let stand in fridge to thicken for 5 mins
Cover with rest of the cool whip and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. ( I added more crushed oreos on top to make it look pretty)
the finished product.
the layers are pretty
My family really liked this, and I felt good eating it because it was relatively healthy. It was quoted as being "refreshing."
This is definitely a new go to for desserts. A great summer treat!
